    Y'all sure have some pretty places and homes!!!

    Here's my place in North Central Mississippi...near Oxford and OLE MISS!!!! 8 acres of beautiful fire....I mean hard wood, and white tail! Snow of this "magnitude" is rare here these days. The schools and some businesses were closed for several days after this "dusting." My "Yankee" friends up in Chicago laugh at my stories of closed schools and sold-out grocery stores prior to and during such meteorological disasters involving 7-10 inches of snow!!! Makes for a rare and pretty landscape...'specially out here in the country. We got down to 7 degrees one night!!!!!! Unheard of here in Dixie. My central system NEVER came on!! Wood Heat RULES!!!!!!

    first load of wood. almost 2 ricks. I started using a 16 foot flatbed and cut 24 ricks in 3 weeks within a few hundred yards of my house. Mostly Oak but there is some blackjack in there.

    A view from the road. The house was built by my family back in the 30's and i bought it from my dad about 5 yrs ago. Sittin on 3 acres surrounded by cranberries, blueberries, and woods. The road turns do dirt right past my property so the only traffic is farm trucks and folks headed off into the woods. Wouldn't have it any other way!

    A lot of beautiful homes . . . but I particularly like this classic Cape . . . there's something very rustic looking and simple looking about a Cape that appeals to me.

    Complete novice at this picture thing - wish i could see it before I hit submit. No Idea how to caption.
    Here's our little fixer upper being fixey upped so all the pictures I have are before, in-progress and better than before - but not completely done cuz it isn't.
    4 acres, no pix of the 40x 60 barn. A really lousy picture of the elcheapo hearth extension I did out of cement boad, thinset, and old tin ceiling panels.

    szmaine,

    nice place. Love the color choice. Looks like you got the front porch leveled. Are you going to re-install the rail? Charming place and nice work.

    Thanks alot. I got to watch out for my love of green or I'd end painting it on everything. I'm not sure about the rails - they are falling apart and no great shakes anyway in my opinion, I thought them kind of klunky looking.

    It looks kind of nice without and loaded up with potted plants in the summer even nicer - but I know it's not code if we ever sold, then again not much else is either. If we do, I thought of maybe using turned balusters similar to the shape of the posts - but am not sure how to paint it - white balusters with a dark green rail? might be an awful lot of white. what do you think?

    I also like sawn balusters but simple for my place not the foofy victorian ones.

    Thanks BG. It's not so small though, 2000sf - house is a clown car, everyone is suprised when they come in - all kinds of queer appendages, dormers and spaces - weidest house layout I've ever seen - had to play Marco! Polo! w/ my youngster the day we looked at it.

    My house was built in 1905 for a doctor and his family. I rent out two apartments upstairs and live on the first floor. Its a 30 year project:

    I bet so how long is your driveway? Thats such a beautiful piece of property though. Especially with the fall colors.

    My place in Unity, Maine . . . 1970s vintage Cape with an attached Mudroom and garage . . . still unsure why they went with the gambrel roof line . . . it's a bit odd since it doesn't "match" the roof line/style of the house . . . perhaps they were thinking of eventually building a mother-in-law apartment on the second floor of the garage.

    We bought our place in August. Larger than we wanted, but we loved the property, school district, and location. Last big snow storm.
